W. Laidlaw Purves, 1887/H.S. Colt, 1922, 1922

This 14-time British Open host dates to 1887. “Sandwich,” as it is known colloquially, serves up blind shots and supremely interesting contours in equal measure. Boasting the biggest sandhills of all Open venues, Royal St. George’s heaving, dune-studded linksland also sports the rota’s most fearsome bunker, a gaping fairway monstrosity on the par-4 4th. (Up 9)
